Enjoy Your Heritage

Went to the 2nd Round of the PGA Heritage at Hilton Head. Picture perfect weather conditions. If you're a spectator on a day like this, golf is never a good walk spoiled.

No live blog today on the golf. First off, there's no cell phones, texting, twittering, picture-taking on the course (it's really not enforced). But it's still hard to type with a cold beverage in your hand.

Here's the backdrop for the famous finishing hole:

And here's how you can see it if you can't get a ticket:

Last year, I followed Stephen Ames around for 14 holes en route to a 64. One of the most impressive sports performances I ever witnessed in person. This year I didn't catch the perfect golf wave, but I can report on a couple of things.

>Todd Hamilton finishes with a birdie on 9, following up a strong Masters with a -8 thru 2 rounds, good for 2nd place heading to the weekend.

>1st Round leader Alex Cejka birdies the 15th, one of the few highlight on his day. He's now tied for 3rd behind Brian Gay and Hamilton.

>Got to watch some household names that didn't qualify for the 2009 Masters: Davis Love, Chris DiMarco, Steve Elkington.

The food selection is decent but limited. The drinks are everywhere. The cougars are out. The weather is perfect. Let's play eighteen.
